Teaching Notes

Spelling activities can be completed each day in the familiar format as follows:

Monday- Find and write out dictionary definitions for the first 4 of your spellings using an online or paper dictionary.

Tuesday- Choose 4 of your spellings and put these into sentences. Remember to be creative and use sentences we have looked at this year such as 2A, simile and list.

Wednesday- Write all of your spellings in alphabetical order.

Thursday- Learn your spellings using the 'look, say, cover, write, check' table provided beneath the spelling list.

Friday- Complete a test on your spellings. 

Our grammar task this week will focus on subject-verb agreement. This sounds tricky but it's actually really simple! In a sentence there can be a subject and a verb. For example, in the sentence 'John walks to the park', 'John' is the subject and 'walks' is the verb. These verbs agree because they are both in their singular forms. However, if you changed the sentence to 'They walk to the park', 'they' is plural so 'walks' changes to 'walk' (without the 's'). Look through the PowerPoint for more information then give the tasks a go. If confused, just read the sentence aloud to see which word sounds correct!

Tuesday Talking & Listening and First News iHub

This week we will continue on with our 'instructions' topic for our Talking & Listening task. Have you ever watched a cookery programme on TV? The chefs always have to provide simple and clear instructions to the viewers while demonstrating each step. This week it's your go to make your own cooking show! Please read the task guidance for details.

Wednesday Punctuation

Our punctuation work this week will be revision of using commas. Commas have several uses and these are outlined in the PowerPoint provided. One of the main reasons for using commas is to separate items in a list and the tasks this week will focus solely on using commas in a list. 
To continue on with our 'instructions' topic we will be creating our own board games this week! As you know, most board  games come with instructions that you must read before you can play. So, once you have come up with an idea for your game you can write out a set of clear instructions that members of your family can read before they give your game a go. Read the task guidance for more information before you begin. You can also use the board game template provided or make up your own! 
Our comprehension this week will be all about Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge which is found on the North Coast of Northern Ireland. It's one of the first places we normally visit on the P6 residential. There are some truly beautiful views as you walk along the cliffs towards the bridge...and once you get there you have to decide whether or not you are brave enough to cross! Do you think you would be brave enough? Have a look at this video and decide!
